Revolut launches donations page to help victims of Türkiye and Syria earthquakes
100 per cent of the money raised through the special donations campaign on the app will go to charities supporting victims of the disaster.
Revolut has launched a donations page on its app to support victims of the recent earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria.
A 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit southern Türkiye, near the border with Syria, on 6 February, and another earthquake struck less than 12 hours later.
Reports currently suggest that more than 21,000 people have been killed, with thousands more injured and figures continuing to rise.
The fintech has partnered with a number of charities so that users can directly donate to charities helping those affected, with 100 per cent of donations going directly to all charities involved.
These include UK for UNHCR, Irish Red Cross and Disasters Emergency committee, and three member charities Save the Children, the British Red Cross and Action Against Hunger.
Revolut customers can donate on the app by navigating to the ‘Hub’ section of the app, clicking the ‘Donations’ icon and selecting a charity.
They can choose to either make a one-off donation, set up a recurring donation, or choose to have Revolut round up the spare change from any purchases and donate those to charity.
According to the app, more than 43,000 users have donated nearly £7m to the UN Refugee Agency.
The special donations campaign is currently available for all users in the UK and EEA.
